Course Description: Social Media is continually evolving and can be an integral step towards a confession and eventually a successful prosecution. As the rules for social media change, so does the ebb and flow of trending applications and their implications on crime. It is important for command staff and other administrators and laymen to stay on top of the latest tools, tips, and tricks to search and identify patterns. It is also important to know what today’s generation may use to showcase and highlight possible crimes online. From anonymous apps to the latest law enforcement portals, this class will review the latest trends online.
